DT Block

DT Block

The Year 1 children have really been enjoying their DT work on structures. The children had to research, discover the materials, design and create their own playground equipment. Most of the children chose to create a swing, slide or roundabout. Even though some of the joins were tricky, the children all managed to make a fantastic piece of equipment which they should be proud of.

Chinese New Year in Year 1

Chinese New Year in Year 1

Year 1 have been learning about Chinese New Year! We have been looking at the different animals that represent each year and we now know that this year is the year of the tiger. We have also been looking at traditions and we know that children receive red envelopes with money and sweets inside for good luck. We all got our own packet of sweets and we received our own red tiger from Jin’s parents, which all the children loved.
